    Description: The interdisciplinary Polytrauma and Traumatic Brain Injury

    and clinical research experiences involving polytrauma, mild TBI, or related disorders.
    The current positions may feature fellowship research projects such as:

    • anaerobic fatigue assessment in people with multiple sclerosis

    • muscle/tendon morphology adaptations to eccentric training in people with post-traumatic arthritis

    The PT/TBI Fellowship will be based at the Washington DC VA Medical Center (DC VAMC) and

    reviewed on a rolling basis; however, one position is currently open with a targeted Fall

    Training Highlights: Didactic training will be supported by the DC VAMC, the
    Georgetown Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience, and the GHUCCTS. The
    learning program will be individualized based on the academic preparation and
    interests of the fellow. Training topics may include: neuroscience, CVA and
    TBI etiology, experimental design, data analysis, grant and manuscript writing,
    and career development.

    Requirements: Successful candidates will have a clinical and/or research
    doctoral degree and be U.S. citizens. Clinical Specialist Track applicants must have a current
